to the university of south florida's tampa bay technology incubator. incubators arm entrepreneurs with the resources needed for success. with a focus on life sciences, this incubator helps scientific entrepreneurs develop companies focusing on things like cancer-detection treatments and medical devices. "it's not just a location, it's more than just a building - it's the network, it's the people, it's the support, it helps them stay on track." nurturing and consulting entrepreneurs are the main goals of a business incubator, but giving them access to investors is equally vital. this was the case for sanberg, but getting in touch with her inner business woman, was also critical. "we're a bunch of neuroscientists that got together, what they primarily helped with us the most are marketing ideas, some of the slides, business plans, executive summaries and organization of that to better our package." cities like tampa, fla, that were hit hard by the recession,are embracing incubators as a way to fuel job growth. and with most incubators focusing on technology, those jobs are professional and high-payin
